Do I need a coax cable

Hey, I’m wondering if someone can help. Do we need a coax cable to run a v6 box? Our house is wireless & the WiFi entry point & tv location are not near each other

Re: Do I need a coax cable

Yes, you need a coax connected to the V6.  You also need an internet connection (either WiFi or ethernet).

If you get a manned installation (I'm assuming that you're thinking of adding a V6) then you can ask them to add another entry point near the TV.

Hello

All Virginmedia TV boxes require the coaxial connection from the VM network, they only use the wireless connection for On Demand, EPG, Apps etc, to be able to get the live TV signal a coax connection is needed.
